Breathe fresh air into your plans with an outdoor event.

The University of Birmingham’s 276-acre campus is home to two spacious outdoor venues. The Green Heart’s broad lawns and walkways bring you eco-friendly space in the heart of campus, while the Vale Village’s rolling green lakeside lawns are a short stroll away. Both offer a variety of options for stages, catering and live events, from fireworks displays to street food from Birmingham legends Digbeth Dining Club.

While we experience restrictions on how we can meet safely, the experienced events team will support you with a range of additional measures, from signage to stewards.
